missed hiv meds
Mar 30, 2013

hi doc, im on zidolam n, my cd4 is 508 and my vl is undecteble. I have mis my meds for 2 weeks. what are my chance of building up resistants? I am very worried. I am writing from Jamaica.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting from Jamaica.

Though something we generally don't recommend, a complete treatment holiday, such as yours, is rarely associated with the development of drug resistance. In part, this is because you've stopped all of your medications at the same time and because you had an undetectable viral load at the time of discontinuation.

Be well, BY

ever heard of an HIV-positive lady freezing eggs for fertility?
